Sun Aug 26: 2-4pm — Ruckatan Latin Tribe (Reggae/Latin)
An ancient game…The winners experience joy, the losers are confounded. Our first move was a successful one, in that we came together from diverse backgrounds and found a common strength. That strength was meeting each other, when we all felt we were at a creative peak in our lives. For some of us, a need to reflect musically what is happening in the world. We have been working on a sound that is a mix of Latin and Reggae, with various overtones of music that has influenced us over the years. The grooves are heavy within the art of songwriting.
Ruckatan Latin Tribe is composed of seven players who have all contributed to the local Latin Rock scene in th...e Bay Area and internationally with various Latin, Reggae and Rock acts. Ruckatan is a fusion of Latin and Reggae. Members hailing from three different continents infuse their culture and love of their roots into this new band called Ruckatan, which includes Carlos Elizalde on Vocals and hand percussions, Jose Angel Amador on vocals and keys, Blaine Hoopes on keys and various woodwinds, Derek Rolando on congas,timbales & percussions, Ernesto «Matute» Lopez on drums & percussions, Ray Uribes on bass and Carlos Hernandez on guitar.
The music is very dance oriented with many Latin and Caribbean flavors.
It’s a celebration of life and music.
